Nollywood star and TV host, Femi Branch, has been conferred with a chieftaincy title in Osun State. The actor on Sunday became the Jagun Asa of Edeland.
The actor, who shared photos from the ceremony on his Instagram page, was coronated by the Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi III.
“I wish to thank my Nollywood family for turning up as well to honour my Traditional Father Timi Agbale Olofa ina. It was indeed a pleasure to see you all. Not only did I have the singular honour of being given a traditional title and drafted into the highly exalted office of the elders fold of Yorubaland by non less than the first class yoruba Monarch, the Timi Of EDELAND, but the Alaafin of Oyo, Father to the Yoruba nation was to personally confer my title on me…. wow….this could only have been God!”

There is nothing like a Mother’s love, a Mother’s devotion, a Mother’s support, a Mother’s prayers. Before I could face the day to take the traditional blessings from Kabiyesi and become the very first JAGUN ASA OF EDELAND,she had to pave the way. She had to say you can now go ahead after she had given me one of the most precious gifts known to Man….a Mother’s blessings. Love you Mum and Happy Mothers Day.
JAGUN ASA OF EDELAND…..All the glory and honour I return to my father who sits in heaven and presides over the affairs of men….Olorun Olubori (the God that overcomes) All thanks to my dear Mama @dasmola_juwon for being God’s instrument.

And to my Father Timi Agbale Olofa Ina, the paramount fuller of Edeland and vice Chairman Osun Traditional Council, Kabiyesi Alayeluwa Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal, Laminisa I, Timi of Edeland, I am grateful Baba. @hrmobaadesola @olorilaminisa @queen_ayeesha
